Here's the press release from Sedgwick County:TAX BILLS MAILED
(Sedgwick County, Kan.) – This week, Sedgwick County Treasurer Ron Estes began mailing more than 260,000 2010 tax bills to the citizens of Sedgwick County.
Real, personal, utility and special assessments totaling more than $520 million will be billed for the various taxing authorities, including school districts, cities, townships and the county.
State statute requires tax bills to be mailed by December 15; however, Sedgwick County normally mails the bills during the last 2 weeks of November. This year, due to technology upgrades, the county implemented a new system, so the bills will look slightly different than last year and arrive during the first week of December. The new system also helped the treasurer’s office identify opportunities to better streamline next year’s statements.
